From the UK: Why to be a Knight-Mozilla fellow

This week, in the midst of Olympics excitement, The Guardian and BBC described what it's like to host a Knight-Mozilla OpenNews fellow and encouraged you to apply to join them or one of six other news organizations as a 2013 Knight-Mozilla Fellow.

The Guardian posted a video featuring current fellow Nicola Hughes talking about what it's been like working on the Guardian's interactive team. At the BBC, there will be major changes in 2013 and Andrew Leimdorfer detailed how their Knight-Mozilla Fellow will be involved.

Every day this week each of the current fellows also wrote about their experiences so far. And there's still time to apply to spend the next year hacking in the newsroom, at hackdays around the world, and with a crew an amazing, inspiring group of "fellow fellows." The deadline is August 11. Apply now!
